Warning iPhone users; the latest build of your smartphone's OS has a substantial security flaw. With OS 3.0, the iPhone does not fully delete your email. Although you can 'delete' a copy of your email, the phone stores another copy of it somewhere in its memory. You can still access the old email by searching for the subject line of the deleted message in Spotlight. Gizmodo gives full details on how to demonstrate this flaw. They also state that someone from Apple has informed them that the company is aware of the flaw and intends to address it in OS 3.1. I certainly hope so; this is an enormous gap in the iPhone's security, and has to be galling for businessmen, politicians, people engaged in dark romantic trysts, and anyone else who relies absolutely on a secure email account. This just goes to show that you can't really trust your cell phone with the most sensitive data in your life.

If it absolutely, positively cannot fall into anyone else's hands, the only safe thing to do is to use a service like Hush Mail to keep your online conversations secret. Most people probably don't have any need for that level of security, but if you've got real worries of identity theft, or just a healthy sense of paranoia, encrypting your data is the only sane option.
